Anniversary dinner

My husband took me there for our 2nd anniversary. Service was very fast, we ordered steak and a chicken & mushroom dish...and they both were great. Staff were friendly and attentive. Its not a cheap restaurant though, so expect to pay min JOD 20 per person.

Best steakhouse in Amman. Reasonable Prices, great service and excellent staff. Love their nachos(a must have) and delicious beer. Kind of pricy, but you're getting amazing quality food and authentic dishes.

The valet parking attendant is super friendly and quick to fetch your car as you're ready to leave. The fish, burgers and steaks... More

First of all, the food was fresh and we did enjoy it. The staff was friendly and so was the owner who stopped by and checked on us. That being said, for the price we expected more flavorful meal.
